Good place for both Bourbon and beer, among other alcoholic needful things. Very good broad selection and prices are fairly low across the board. I don't always find rare releases here but the standard offerings are quite good. Some interesting bourbon choices here too that I don't see at some of the mom and pop stores. Love Liquor Barn.

Last visit - Feb 6, 2014.

This is one of the finest stores you will ever go to. The place is the size of a pretty good supermarket and is always well organized and clean. They have a huge selection of craft beer on tap and will sell you a 64 oz. growler or even a 32 oz. "howler'. As far as packaged beer they have everything from a wide selection of crafts to every AAL and everything in between. They have a huge selection of crafts that they sell by the bottle (10% discount if you buy 12). Their walk in cooler is the size of most C-Stores. Prices are well within acceptable range.

Although not completely related, their selection of bourbon and just about every other spirit is unrivaled in the Louisville KY area. They also have a huge section devoted to party supplies. This really is a one stop shopping place for a party.

This place is worth going a little out of the way to get to.

The Springhurst store is the largest of its kind in Louisville and probably the state. The growler wall is fantastic and having a brew at the bar discussing the merits of the concoction with the Knowledgeble staff makes the experience all the better. Special tapping nights and food trucks outside only make it better. If you need a hard to find beer in Ky or one of the great Bourbons, then you have found the place

This store is the reason I started seeking out craft beer. The store is roughly the size of a medium sized supermarket, and had a whole supermarket isle dedicated to a nice selection of craft beer. Each type of liquor has a supermarket sized isle dedicated to it, so the selection for any type of alcohol is definitely better than average. Other than that it has a humidor, frozen party food selection and fireworks. I have not found another store with the selection and variety this store has. Will definitely stop next time I am in Kentucky.

GROWLER HEAVEN!!! Wow, this is the mecca for filling a growler with great craft beer. I'm not talking about normal shit either, they have some semi-rare and solid rotating craft beer from everywhere + locals. The price is a little high, but where else are you going to get a growler of BCBS, Heine Bros Imperial Coffee Stout, 90 Min, BCS, New Albanian, BBC, lots of DIPA's, Porters, etc..

No one in the area can compete with the taps they offer.

The bottle selection is money too. They usually have all the hard to find beers on the shelf after they are gone at other stores.

I live in Naptown, but love coming back home to grab a few good growlers to take back.

I have always enjoyed this place. They offer wide selection of beers on tap to-go called "Growler Heaven". They have always had an above average selection of regional brews such as Three Floyd's, Founder's, Bell's and Southern Tier. But know, this place has moved up the scale for me recently. I managed to score a bottle of Founder's CBS and DFH 120 Minute. This place was definitely above average, but now they are amazing in my opinion. Not too many places in Louisville had CBS. Cheers to Drew, the beer guru at Liquor Barn!

A - 4.5 The Liquor Barn is a fun place to shop for me because it makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. The people are mostly friendly and it is usually busy because it is one of the most comprehensive stores in town.

Q - 5 Everything here is kept clean and organized. The products are definitely top-notch.

Ser - 4 Usually the staff has been friendly but they aren't always the most experienced or knowledgeable. Generally helpful nonetheless.

Sel - 5 I don't know that I've been to a better store all-around as far as total selection. The growler station has at least 30-40 taps and generally a great mix of locals, imports, and micro brews. There are a great supply of bottles as well, not to mention wine and liquor being just as competitive.

F - 4.5 There's a nice selection of good food here also, all of which I've had is of very good quality.

V - $$ Given the selection and availability of most products this store has a good value. It is very fair in price. The growlers are borderline inexpensive depending on what you want. Most bottled offerings are about what to expect for a store of this size. I wish they had more sales, however, but it won't keep me from going back when in town.
